So much for the idea there is an unlikely quarterback controversy brewing in Washington. Backup Kirk Cousins didn't get a chance to add any fuel to the notion. ''When it really counts, we'll be out there.'' Third-stringer Colt McCoy played the entire night for Washington (3-1), throwing for 321 yards, two touchdowns and a pair of end-zone interceptions that stopped promising drives. ''Other than that, I think he played very good, not only in the passing game, but in the running game,'' the coach added.

There was no further talk of a quarterback controversy for the Washington Redskins on Thursday night at Raymond James Stadium. Not because starter Robert Griffin III snapped out of his preseason slump with an electrifying performance, and not because backup Kirk Cousins put together another strong showing. Instead, coach Jay Gruden put the game in the hands of third-string QB Colt McCoy, who led the Redskins to a 24-10 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. To that end, McCoy spent the entire game under center for the Redskins (3-1), finishing 22 of 29 with 321 yards and two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions.

Brian Hoyer looked sharp and rookie Johnnie Manziel connected for a touchdown as the Cleveland Browns rolled past the Chicago Bears 33-13 on Thursday night at First Energy Stadium. Hoyer went 6-for-8 and looked confident as he drove the Browns to a first-quarter score. In the second quarter, he led the Browns on a five-play 80-yard drive, which was capped by a one-yard TD pass to Jim Dray. His Arizona counterpart, Chandler Catanzaro kicked three field goals.

A coalition demanded Thursday that the NFL team from Washington be barred from using its ''Redskins'' name on University of Minnesota turf. The National Coalition Against Racism in Sports and Media held a news conference outside TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, the Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1q9vzoU ) reported. The Minnesota Vikings are leasing the university's stadium for two seasons while their new $1 billion stadium is built on the site of the former Metrodome in downtown Minneapolis. Earlier this month, the university publicly asked the Washington team to keep the Redskins name off jerseys, promotional materials, announcements and merchandise sold during the game.

The Washington Redskins organization has ?started the process? of designing a new stadium to serve as the team?s home, owner Dan Snyder told Comcast SportsNet in an exclusive interview Wednesday. ?Whether it's Washington, D.C., whether it's another stadium in Maryland, whether it's a stadium in Virginia, we've started the process,? Snyder said. ?We are going to push forward. We've started meeting with architectural firms. We are in the process of developing because it is a long term that you do it.? The current home of the Redskins, FedEx Field, opened in 1997. Prior to the opening of FedEx, the Redskins played at RFK Stadium, which opened in 1961. According to Snyder, plans for a new stadium have RFK in mind. ?We've already seen some preliminary drawings and I'm going to be very retro with it,? he told CSN. ?It's gonna feel like RFK. It's gonna move like RFK. I love that, I actually asked architectural firms to do it and they said that they can do it. I said that I think the lower bowl sections are going to want to rock the stadium like the old days.? Snyder gave no official timeline for approval, but said the proposed designs could then become a stadium that hosts a Super Bowl in the future. ?I'd like to see it sooner than later, but we love FedEx Field,? he said. ?It's a great place to feature our home games, but it's 17 years old now. I think it's time for us to start looking and we're doing it. "I think this region, not only this town, this region deserves a Super Bowl. It ought to be here, it would be a fantastic accomplishment. It's the biggest sporting event in the globe. It's the nation's capital, it's a no-brainer." -- Daniel Martin, CSNWashington.com

Domestic violence charges have been dropped against former Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis, court papers showed on Thursday. Davis, 28, was charged with simple assault and attempted threats to do bodily harm because of an altercation in June with a former girlfriend at a Washington restaurant. Davis had been scheduled to appear in District of Columbia Superior Court on Thursday for a status hearing. Davis, a second-round draft pick from the University of Southern California, played for the Redskins for six years.

A subtle change to the NFL rulebook resulted in an 822 percent increase in illegal contact penalties through three weeks of the preseason. Now the key question is not whether those calls will continue to rise in the regular season, because NFL Vice President of Officiating Dean Blandino is sure they will. ''We don't think this is a mistake at all,'' Blandino said. ''It's going to provide more consistent officiating, and ultimately that's what everyone wants.'' What fans, coaches and defenders want to know is: Just how often will flags fly when games count next week?

Apparently, the stadium builders in the mid-1990s didn't know how to build a place that could last for more than a couple decades. MLB's Atlanta Braves have plans to ditch Turner Field, which was built in conjunction with the 1996 Summer Olympics. Now Redskins owner Daniel Snyder is excited about moving from his stadium, which was opened in 1997. He told CSN Washington in an exclusive interview that the process of designing a new stadium has already started. Hey FexEd Field, it has been a good run of nearly 20 years. But they don't make 'em like Lambeau anymore. ?I'd like to see it sooner than later, but we love FedEx Field,? Snyder told CSN Washington. ?It's a great place to feature our home games, but it's 17 years old now. I think it's time for us to start looking and we're doing it." It's 17 years old now? OK, then. If the Redskins want a new stadium because they realized a mistake moving out to the suburbs and want to get back to their Washington, D.C. roots, it would be somewhat understandable. But Snyder doesn't seem to care where they move. He just wants a new place. ?Whether it's Washington, D.C., whether it's another stadium in Maryland, whether it's a stadium in Virginia, we've started the process,? Snyder told CSN Washington. That might not sit well with the people of Landover, Md., where the Redskins moved to. The taxpayers spent $70.5 million for "land, sewer lines, highway interchanges and other infrastructure," so the Redskins could move there, according to a Baltimore Sun article from 1997 . The stadium itself, at $180 million, was financed privately. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today! ] Maybe Snyder is a bit envious. The Redskins' stadium isn't the best in the league, but it's not bad. It's just not as nice as the billion-dollar stadiums that NFC rivals Dallas and the New York Giants have. Snyder didn't own the team when the current stadium was built. Snyder talked about how he wants the new stadium to be like old RFK Stadium, down to how the lower bowl rocked up and down like it did during the team's glory days (as an aside, when you hear Snyder waxing nostalgic about his childhood rooting for the team, you realize he's not going to be the one to change the team's controversial nickname, ever) and how a new stadium could lure a Super Bowl. What will be interesting is if Snyder plans to finance this new stadium himself. It's rare that no tax money is spent when there's a new stadium, at least on the same things that were required when the Redskins moved to Landover. If Snyder is willing to pay the entire cost, he basically can do whatever he wants. But if the taxpayers have to kick in, wherever the new stadium will go, they'll have good reason to ask if they're getting more than a 20-year commitment for their investment. - - - - - - - Frank Schwab is the editor of Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.

The Washington Redskins are taking steps toward finding a spot to build a new home to replace their 17-year-old stadium. Redskins owner Dan Snyder told CSNWashington.com on Wednesday that he has "started the process" of entertaining designs for a new home field at a site to be determined. "Whether it's Washington, D.C., whether it's another stadium in Maryland, whether it's a stadium in Virginia, we've started the process," Snyder said. We've started meeting with architectural firms.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was suspended for one year by the NFL on Wednesday for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Gordon is not allowed to practice with the Browns, attend team meetings or other club functions for an entire year. Gordon, 23, acknowledged that the league upheld his suspension in a statement released by the NFL Players Association. "I'd like to apologize to my teammates, coaches, the Cleveland Browns organization and our fans," Gordon said in the statement.

Troy Vincent defended the NFL's two-game suspension of Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather for a preseason hit on Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith. Vincent, the NFL's new executive vice president of football operations and a former defensive back, gave an interview with the NFL Network on Wednesday. The Redskins contend that Meriweather could not avoid a helmet-to-helmet hit as both he and Smith lowered their heads as a pass sailed incomplete across the middle.

Brock Osweiler won't play a meaningful snap for the Denver Broncos until Peyton Manning gets hurt or retires. Osweiler led four scoring drives in an efficient final tuneup for a third year behind Manning, and the Broncos beat the Cowboys 27-3 Thursday night, sending Dallas to the fifth winless preseason in franchise history. Drafted by John Elway to be groomed as Manning's replacement, Osweiler had his best preseason yet, engineering eight scoring drives in four games and completing 29 of 49 passes for 416 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. ''Coach (John) Fox has a saying, 'If you're not getting better, you're getting replaced,' so that sat with me pretty hard since my rookie year,'' Osweiler said after directing three drives that ended in rushing touchdowns.

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson reiterated on Thursday that he hopes to remain in Minnesota until he retires, responding to a report that he spoke to Jerry Jones about one day playing for the Dallas Cowboys. Peterson and the Vikings both issued statements shortly after ESPN reported that Peterson had a phone conversation with Jones, the owner of the Cowboys, this summer about playing for the team in Peterson's home state after his time with the Vikings came to a close. ''This was a casual conversation between NFL colleagues in which I never indicated I wanted to leave the Vikings,'' Peterson said. ''I have always said I understand the NFL is a business but that I would love to retire as a Viking.'' The business part of the NFL is starting to come into play for the 29-year-old Peterson, who is the league's highest paid running back, a position that is increasingly occupied by younger, cheaper players.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced a dramatic new domestic violence policy for the league Thursday, admitting "I didn't get it right" with Ray Rice. The measures were announced in a letter to all team owners and come after widespread criticism and a social media firestorm that Goodell absorbed following his handling of discipline for the Baltimore Ravens running back. A first offense under the new domestic violence policy calls for a six-game suspension, while a second offense would result in a lifetime ban. The two-game suspension for Rice left many with the impression that the NFL did not take domestic violence seriously as a crime.

What do you do if you're an NFL owner and a star player says he wants to play for you? Oh yeah, and it happens to be an NFL player who is on another team? According to ESPN's "Outside the Lines ," Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson told Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on a June phone call that he could envision playing for the Cowboys when his Vikings tenure was up. [ Smack talk season is back at Yahoo Sports: Sign up and play free Fantasy Football! ] That put Jones in a little pickle. "Well, I understand, Adrian," Jones told Peterson on the call, per the ESPN personality profile on Jones. "I'd like that, too ... Well, I love your story. I love your daddy's story. I've always respected what you've been about. I've always been a fan of yours." NFL tampering rules prohibit club officials from talking to other teams' players, so this raises all kinds of questions for Jones. But according to the report, Jones might have been ambushed a bit by this one. Jones reportedly was in hissuite at AT&T Stadium when a friend handed him a phone. On that phone initially was a Morgan Stanley money manager who had attended the final George Strait concert back on June 7. That man talked to Peterson and then put the phone in Jones' hand without saying who was on the other end. That's how we got to Peterson saying what he did. It should be noted that Peterson ? who is from Texas originally and played high-school football there ? can say whatever he wants on the matter to anyone else; that's not considered tampering, per NFL rules. But Jones responding in a certain fashion certainly could be construed as such. "Well, we'll see what we can do, if we can make that happen," Jones reportedly told Peterson. "Hmm hmm ... I'd like that, too ... Well, we're talking pig Latin here, but let's see if we can do that ... We're talking pig Latin here, but let's see what we can do about that. OK, Adrian, thanks." So pig Latin is likely the wink-wink code for those pesky tampering rules that the NFL folks take quite seriously, and it's likely something the Vikings ? who have Peterson under contract through the 2017 season ? will want to investigate further. Typically, teams are steamed when they hear reports of other teams messing with their guys. Right now, however, they don't appear too concerned with it. #Vikings statement: "We are focused on the 2014 season, and ... Adrian is an integral part of the Vikings organization." ? Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) August 28, 2014 Let's unpack this one piece at a time, shall we? First of all, Jerry Jones is just priceless. He's had a whale of an offseason, from jettisoning players such as DeMarcus Ware to passing on Johnny Manziel in the draft, unable to keep his mouth closed on the matter whenever he's asked about that call. That's what Jones does: he talks and talks and talks, and it's rarely empty of substance. So it's still not stunning that Jones, who clearly knows the NFL tampering rules, would still skirt the line of legality when handed a phone with another team's player on it when an ESPN writer is in the room who is likely armed with inked-up pen, notebook and recording device. What does Jones have planned for his next act of stunning brilliance? We don't know. But we do know that the league will have a say on this. The rules are clear; per the CBA, Jones must report such a violation when it occurs, even accidentally, as this appears to be. They read: "... the contacted club must immediately report such contact to the owner or operating head of the club which holds the player's rights." Short of doing that, Jones could face"severe" penalties from the commissioner's office. Peterson is in the midst of a seven-year contract worth a total of $100 million, with a salary this season of $11.75 million. And we must hold him accountable, too. Peterson essentially reached out to Jones with this, even if the two were connected through other parties. But the running back came out Thursday and said he wants to retire a Viking . In a statement, Peterson said the contact with Jones"was a casual conversation between NFL colleagues in which I never indicated I wanted to leave the Vikings. I have always said I understand the NFL is a business but that I would love to retire as a Viking." In the ESPN feature on Jones, who drafted Zack Martin with the 16th pick this May, there also is a fascinating Manziel nugget (does that stun anyone?). Jones recalled his meeting with Manziel prior to the draft and how the bold-talking quarterback gave Jones quite the promise. "If we had picked Manziel, he'd guarantee our relevance for 10 years," Jones said in May. "When we were on the clock, I said if we pick the other guy ? any other guy ? it would be a ticket to parity, more 8-8 seasons. "The only way to break out is to gamble ? take a chance with that first pick, if you wanna dramatically improve your team. That's why I wanted Manziel, but I was the only guy who wanted him. I listened to everybody ... And I'm ... not ... happy ... ." Wow. If Jones spent the rest of his days on earth with alavalier microphone pinned to his blue lapel, it would be the gift that keeps on giving. We'd rename the blog in his honor. That's our promise. So Jones might not have promised Peterson anything the way Manziel promised Jones, but there's certainly more to this story, whether it's written in pig Latin or any other language.

Dallas Cowboys defensive back Jakar Hamilton was issued a four-game suspension by the National Football League on Thursday for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, the second ban on Dallas defenders. Hamilton will miss the first four games of the season, which begins next week, only being eligible to return following the Cowboys' September 28 home matchup against New Orleans. Dallas opens at home September 7 against San Francisco before trips to Tennessee and St. Louis. Hamilton played three times for the Cowboys last season as a rookie, making two tackles, and had missed two pre-season games this month with a concussion and a hamstring injury.
